I installed the awning poles and have a problem. Now, while opening the awning, the gas lift strut on the arm towards the front of the trailer (the end of the awning with the electrical hook up) isn't strong enough to hold up its end of the awning. I have to believe it's because of the additional weight of the pole. Has anyone else had this problem?
I'm thinking it might be a defective strut because the rear arm strut seems to be holding up ok. But before I ask for a warranty replacement strut I thought it was best to check here first.
Appreciate any comments. Thanks.
